Share here: Interview Question Generation Exercise. From Mike.

You will work with a partner to create 10 good and different questions that might be used for a profile interview.

When done, one of the two partners should come on the blog here and share the five best out of your 10 in the Comments section of this post.

That way we can all share and use the best questions as we compile our question lists for Wednesday.
